Heh, Lorelei is in the house today!
And no, this post is not what you think it might be. Heck it has nothing to do with writing. Or promotion (GUNS AND ROSES IS STILL AVAILABLE!! GET YOUR COPY NOW!!)
See, we’ve been in remodeling hell for the last two billion years, and finally, our guest bedroom is finished! The room is completely cleared of crap. No more broken pinatas! No more discarded dress up clothes/prom clothes/painting clothes! No more LP’s that fall on your head when you open the closet door! No more naked Barbie dolls tied up to My Little Pony’s–which strangely resembled the plots in some of my Rough Riders books! (kidding) No more stacks of fabric for assorted crafts I’ll never do! No more piles of pictures and kids artwork I’ll never put in scrap books! That extra room is no longer a crap repository for everything NO ONE in the house wanted, or wanted to deal with, so it just got chucked in there.
Well, those days are gone.
The room is done. New paint, new window, new doors, new floor trim, new light, new carpet! But most importantly, a new headboard for the bed. Our good friend Mark built us a log bed, crafted from chunks of wood he found on his ranch. Tell me it’s not the coolest thing EVAH! Umm…don’t look at the wrinkled comforter, k? I’d just taken it out of the package and I have every intention of ironing it to a crisp finish — okay, that’s a total lie, but look at the overall picture, not my lack of ironing ability:
I’m so so so thrilled! Now our guests don’t have to sleep in the tree fort! But with the log bed, they can still pretend, right? And who knows, I might even keep a rope in the closet…you never know when a rope might come in handy 😉
The only things left are to put in a closet organizer, a nightstand, and I’m having a settee recovered, then yee-haw, my western bedroom will be fully realized.
Next week? We start ripping out kitchen cabinets for a total kitchen remodel–yes, we’re gluttons.
SO, question of the day MSW’ers, if you could remodel any room in your house, which one would it be? I’ll offer up a couple of $15 gift cards to online vendor of your choice to lucky random commenters!
Oh, and here’s a tasty little shot called...Tie Me To The Bedpost…yes the shot is different than the drink of the same name —
1/2 oz of Malibu coconut rum
1/2 oz of Midori
1/2 oz lemon vodka
1/2 oz sour mix
Shake with ice and then pour in a shot glass 🙂
